Activites and Events

Residency Program Showcase

Location: Michigan State University College of Human Medicine - Secchia Center

Event Date: August 12, 2017 from 1:00 to 4:00 PM

Medical students from across the state of Michigan are invited to our showcase event to learn more about our residency programs, connect with Program Directors, and hear from current residents about residency life and living in Grand Rapids. This showcase allows medical students to interact directly with program directors and residents while learning the intricacies of applying to residency programs.

Spectrum Health, Pine Rest and Mercy Health Grand Rapids will have representatives available with information on their programs, as well as available resources for these future residents to connect to the greater Grand Rapids community.  This program is open to all interested medical students, especially those graduating in 2018 and 2019.  We strongly encourage students with diverse backgrounds and skill sets to attend. For additional information contact .
